Materials Documentations


ARNITEL® ID2045 is a high-performance ThermoPlastic Copolyester (TPC) that offers you a unique combination of flexibility, high temperature resistance and strength – plus excellent processing characteristics. In industries ranging from automotive to E&E, Arnitel® is increasingly being as a lighter, smarter, greener alternative to conventional rubbers – reducing environmental impact and ultimately, system costs. The product is supported by an experienced and knowledgeable global team continuously working on new ideas and applications, as well as exploring new markets. By listening to your needs and understanding your process and products, we develop solutions that make a real difference.


  • It is a soft and flexible material that brings speed to your 3D printing production – it loads onto the machine and prints twice as fast as other TPCs

  • It combines this easy and fast printing with high performance characteristics enabled by excellent inter-layer adhesion due to its slower crystallization behavior

  • Arnitel® is 100% recyclable, made with 50% bio-based feedstock

  • >50% renewable content. For soft or flexible applications:

    • Automotive, aerospace, railway, motorsports – e.g. lighting frames, tubes, wipers.

    • Flexible tools and electronics

    • Healthcare – such as brosthetics, bruxism splints

    • Sports & Lifestyles – e.g. shoe midsoles, mouth guards, shin guards, glasses, earbuds, smartwatches, jewelry


ARNITEL®ID2045@DSM is available in the original packaging of DSM.

Additional information

Common fused filament fabrication (FFF) equipment should work with Arnite® filaments, direct drive as well as Bowden type extruders. Typical settings for any slicing software (e.g. Slic3R, Cura, Simplify3D) are listed below. Note that for different nozzle diameters the settings should be changed accordingly.


In order to prevent moisture pick up and contamination, supplied packaging should be kept closed and undamaged. For the same reason, partially used bags should be sealed before re-storage. Allow the material that has been stored elsewhere to adapt to the temperature in the processing room while keeping the bag closed.
